We spend 3 nights (Fri, Sat, Sun, not during school holidays) at Footprints Preston Beach 2 bedrooms TownHouse and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have 2 teenagers which needed seperate rooms and toilets so this Townhouse met our needs in the price range. Our son slept on the pullout sofa and could access the downstairs outside toilets easily. Private location as townhouse was at the back of the complex.
There’s parking for 2 cars even though it wasn’t at the door, it was only a short walk. Complex was tidy and well kept. We were greeted by a kangaroo as we unloaded our stuff , nice welcome.
Townhouse was very clean and beds were comfortable. Main bedroom was spacious. Second room had a cozy shower and basin and 2 single beds. Kitchen equipment, pots and crockery were really new. Although we had an issue with a faulty microwave but private manager reponded and tackled the problem promptly. Dishwasher is a plus and dining area was spacious for the 4 of us. We were told no wifi and phone reception wasn’t always great. But it meant more opportunities to play some old fashion card / boardgames. Good reverse cycle air conditioning.
Only one downside were the showers. Both seperate showers had rather picering jets and water flow was minimal. Even though there was a double shower head in main bed bathroom, we would have preferred a very good shower head instead. Water was hot though and toiletries were included and all towels were nice.
We were very pleased with the capsule coffee machine and upon request, the manager/owner gave us a lovely supply of capsules. Nothing better to be able to start the day in your pjs with a good coffee or 2. Cafe pizza were delicious and excellent service from staff.
We didn’t end up using the pool but did take a nice 10 minute leisurely walk towards the beach. It was a truly fantastic and memorable first time experience for us at Preston Beach.
